Taylors Lakes

Taylors Lakes, a residential suburb on the Calder Freeway, north-west of Keilor, is 20 km north-west of central Melbourne.

The name comes from a series of ponds and the large Taylors Dam on Taylors Creek, which flows from Sydenham, south-easterly through Green Gully, into the Maribyrnong River. Until the area was settled residentially in the 1970s and 1980s, it was treated as part of Sydenham. The name came from William Taylor, owner of the large Overnewton property (1849) which stretched westwards from Keilor, enclosing the Taylors Creek watershed.
